    Would also like to know as I will be installing one. From what I've seen/read, you place it inline of the "in" port for the intercooler. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

    Correct!
    You are "straining" the raw water that enters the IC.

    on the 08 rxt-x, i strained all the incoming water and used the "how to" post as a guide. on the new skis, can i do the same thing and just run a new line from the incoming water through hull up to the strainer and then from the stainer back down to the original incoming line?

    I haven't looked closely enough on the new PX but that sounds right.
    Just be sure NOT to restrict it by using smaller diameter hose.
    On my iBr is a tee. The port that goes to the inlet of the IC gets "strained".

    thanks. what do you mean the ibr has a tee? is it the line from the ibr? one side of tee goes to inlet of intercooler, other side goes to exhaust? could i just strain before the tee so that all water is strained? sorry if that sounds confusing . . .

    Hope this link helps(I'm on my phone) look at the side of the iBR. Hose #5 is where MY strainer goes.
    Yes...technically you can put a strainer before the exhaust but the issue is keeping the IC clean. The header doesn't collect junk like the IC.
